perhaps use a google account for your mailing lists by actually logging
into the web interface. Google handles lists very well. You rarely have to
deal with Re: Re: Re's and 5x indented quotes. It automagickally cuts all
that nonsense out and you get a clean and readable stream. I use a client
for everything else, but the google mail UI handles lists extremely well, I
highly recommend it.
